Around the world in YA

It’s probably about time I did this tag! I was tagged by Olivia @ Heir of Glitter so thank you!

So the aim of this tag is to list a bunch of countries – whether they’re the same as the person who tagged you or newly thought up – and find a book that’s set there.

I think the reason I’ve delayed this for so long is because I hardly ever remember where a story is set unless it’s a made up world like Hogwarts (Harry Potter) or Erilea (Throne of Glass). But now I’ve thought of some so let’s do this!

I recommend… Part 1

I recommend fantasy, complex and scifi

Since Christmas is around the corner, I thought I’d do a post about which books I would recommend. This is part one, with part two coming up the following weekend. In this post, I recommend 6 books for fantasy lovers, lovers of a complex storyline, and SciFi nerds. So read on, and enjoy!

Seasons of Book Blogging

Hello!

I’ve been tagged in so many posts lately, which is why there’s been an increase of posts from me this week. Hope you don’t mind!

Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide to Novels tagged me to do the Seasons of Book Blogging book tag, so thank you, and here it is!

How this works:

  • Thank the creator (so she can see all of your answers!) and the person who tagged you.
  • Begin with the month in which you have been tagged and move forward from there!
  • State the best gift you’ve ever been given after you answer the question for your birthday month.
  • Tag whomever you’d like when you’re finished.. or else you’ll be “it” forever.
  • Have fun, of course!

So let’s do this!

Series I have yet to finish

Series I have yet to finish

I have this habit of buying books that are completely unrelated to each other, instead of buying the next book in a series I’ve started to continue on. So I have A LOT of series I haven’t yet finished.

This will be split into two different section: Series where the books have all been released and I’ve just not gotten round to continuing yet, and Series that I am up to date with, but need to wait for the next books to be released to finish.

There will be Goodreads links for the 1st books in the series, if you want to check them out.

So…let’s do this!
